.../polymer flooding. While steam injection in heavy oil reservoirs can be very successful, more than 95% of the resource in Lloydminster is less than 10 m thick and, thus, is not amenable to steam injection due to excessive heat losses to the surrounding formations. However, EOR processes involving mild...
